look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours very dark brown. Comes close to black in some places. Cola notes show around the edge. It's a little on the light side for a double / imperial stout. The tan head tops out at just under a finger and sticks around for about a minute. Lacing is pretty spotty and scarce.

S - Milk chocolate really comes through pretty quick. Cocoa follows. Some burnt wood notes dance around the middle. Alcohol and vanilla barely show up at the very end. It's nice but one dimensional. Chocolate takes over and never lets go.

T - Now, this is getting much better. Bakers chocolate starts it off. Bourbon heat is present throughout and acts as a nice backdrop for the other flavors. Nice smokey charcoal middle that comes across as kind of muted. It's nice though. A little more chocolate Finishes it all up. Coffee doesn't really show up until it comes closer to room temperature. Even then, it's very faint.

M - Medium bodied with a medium carbonation level. Finish is relatively dry and hangs out on the palate for a while.

D - This is a solid brew that the folks at Central Waters have come up with. This one is easy sip on and enjoy over an extended period of time. That doesn't really change the overall drinkability in any way. The aroma was really a slight let down but not by much as it was still good. I could definitely have this beer again and if I get the chance, I will.

A - It pour black with less than an inch of mocha head. There is some lacing.

S - The coffee was noticeable immediately. After some warming the bourbon begins to come through with caramel and vanilla.

T - The taste follows the same path. Initially, it was coffee. Approaching room temperature released the bourbon flavors. The coffee faded to the background while caramel and bourbon replaced it. A lingering bourbon aftertaste was the final result.

M - Smooth and full with low carbonation.

O - I haven't been this worried about an infection since that time I hooked up with a chick in the parking lot of a Red Roof Inn. Luckily, both instances were infection free. This is an excellent coffee stout, but the infection rumors had me apprehensive. I am enjoying this beer very much on a borderline chilly Independence Day eve.

2013 bottle as an extra in trade. Pours black with a one finger dark khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, some coffee, vanilla oak, bourbon. Flavor is bourbon heavy though not boozy, barely any coffee, light chocolate, nice vanilla finish. Bit of a Jack and Coke flavor going on here, supplemented by the lack of body. Body is on the thin side with medium carbonation. Overall a nice flavor but seems to need a good bit more body. Doesn't seem like this one is infected so that's good! Not bad but I don't think I'll seek this one out again.
